Decompressing is just as simple as compressing:
Python 1.5.2 (#80, May 25 1999, 18:06:07) [GCC 2.8.1] on sunos5
Copyright 1991-1995 Stichting Mathematisch Centrum, Amsterdam
i>>> import zlib
>>> c = zlib.compress("""So, if this were indeed my Final Hour, ... """)
>>> print zlib.decompress(c)
So, if this were indeed my Final Hour, these would be my words to you.
I would not claim to pass on any secret of life, for there is none, or
any wisdom except the passionate plea of caring ... Try to feel, in
your heart's core, the reality of others. This is the most painful
thing in the world, probably, and the most necessary. In times of
personal adversity, know that you are not alone. Know that although in
the eternal scheme of things you are small, you are also unique and
irreplaceable, as are all of your fellow humans everywhere in the
world. Know that your commitment is above all to life itself.

Python includes the "rotor" module, which does some simple but not
necessarily secure encryption. mxCrypto
(http://starship.python.net/crew/lemburg/mxCrypto.html) contains more
industrial-strength encryption for Python.
